From the specially commissioned calligraphy to the top-notch Lebanese cooking, it’s authenticity all the way at this long-established and buzzy Westbourne Grove stalwart. Fans of meze will be delighted by Al Waha’s diverse selection, which spans everything from bright, lemony foul moukala (fried broad beans) to warmly flavoured moujadara – a comforting mix of rice and lentils, topped with crisp caramelised onion. Meaty grills, endless supplies of puffed-up bread and some punchy Lebanese wines complete the offer.
Whether you're looking for a Middle Eastern feast or a range of light Lebanese treats, we've gathered up our favourite restaurants and cafés in London doing a great trade in meze, mixed grills, and classic Lebanese dishes. Try Kenza if you're after a truly palatial experience or Comptoir Libanais for a bustling and bright canteen. Less trad is Le Bab, who have jazzed up the Lebanese kebab blueprint. Here, fillings change with the seasons, with preserved, charred and fermented ingredients.
RECOMMENDED: These are the very best restaurants in London right now
